    FAQS :

    how long of a slice will this make?

    The carriage that allows you to feed an item into the slicer pulls out to about a distance of 10 inches between its handle and the surface of the blade. So you could cut something 10 inches in diameter for a 10 inch slice. You could potentially make a longer slice, but then you would have to feed the item in by hand and need to watch your fingers...

    Would Kramer buy this?

    where can I buy a fuse for Chef's Choice 615?

    According to the manual ... Satisfactory replacement fuses are available from Hollyland 50T, LittelFuse (Model 2181.25) or Bussman GDCS505. All are Slo-Blo type, rated at 1.25A and 250V. You can find them on Amazon

    Can this slice through the heel of a shoe?

    Why would anyone use a food slicer to cut a shoe heel? There is a quote covering the use of tools... " Use the proper tool and use it properly. " Or words to that effect.

    Does it break down nicely to clean? I hate how most are hard to clean because they don’t break siwn

    The 615 is very easy to break down for cleaning. Lol, I have 5 thumbs when it comes to mechanical engineering, and even I have no problems. It's not a complicated piece of equipment. I think it's one of the best designed slicers out there. Especially for the money.

    Gears medal or plastic

    It is plastic, but it is amazing. We had a slicer that was around $100 (don't remember the brand) and almost every time the meat touched the blade, the gear would skip and it was a huge hassle to use. Now we have this model and it is amazing. It literally cuts as fast as you can slide the meat through. I love it!
